The visual aspects of J.R. Carpenter's work, which I won't try to describe in their complexity here, can be accessed on her marvelous website Luckysoap.com.
I came away with 3 books - 2 by Tim Allen (thanks for the freebee Tim) and JR Carpenter's Notes on the Voyage of Owl and Girl, which is a printed version of one of her web-based pieces which captured the ear very well in her performance.
A busy week coming up with readings to attend as I embark on the last week of this teaching year (all that lovely marking yet to do though!). I look forward to hearing JR Carpenter at The Other Room on Thursday 30th April 7pm and Tim Allen at Peter Barlow's Cigarette on Saturday 2nd May. Our third year students at Edge Hill will also perform pieces from their poetry portfolios during their last session on Friday. Lots to look forward to!
